The story in The Guardian (UK) about the London bus slogan campaign gathered widespread attention in Australian media. Also in that report and unfortunately left out by our newspapers is that all metropolitan bus companies have rejected a similar program by Atheists in Australia.
President, David Nicholls said, “Are we so provincial and narrow in outlook that apart from banning such adverts, the local media refuses even to mention it?
As the originator of the London bus slogans, Ariane Sherine stated, “This is a great day for freedom of speech in Britain”.”
The same cannot be said for Australia.
